All the Public TV Listings And Podcast Pronouncements
by Benjamin F. Elliott
USA - Doctor Who - Series 3 (The Runaway Bride and the 13 episode 2007 series with Freema Agyeman as Martha Jones) are now distributed to Public TV stations by BBC Worldwide Americas, not American Public TV. Series 4 is becoming available by January - a PBS station has put it on the schedule. (Maybe it should be Series 4 part 1, as I doubt The Next Doctor onwards are included with it yet.) BBC Worldwide Americas also distributes classic Doctor Who to stations.
If you're a PBS station airing Doctor Who and I don't have you listed - contact me. If you're watching Doctor Who on a PBS station that's not on this list - contact me AND tell me the day, time, and episode that aired so I can track things down (some stations have websites where schedule information is - lacking).
The public TV stations known to have bought Series 4:
Idaho Public TV - starts 2 January
The public TV stations known to have bought The Runaway Bride and Series 3:
WXXI 21 Rochester, NY
WTTW 11 Chicago, IL
WGVU/WGVK 35,52 Grand Rapids/Kalamazoo, MI
WILL 12 Urbana, IL
WTVP 47 Peoria, IL
Iowa Public TV

KUED 7 Salt Lake City, UT
KLRU 18 Austin, TX
Alaska Public TV
WSKG/WSKA 46,30 Binghamton/Elmira, NY
KERA 13 Dallas, TX (currently in first run)
Now, I am confident that there are more stations with rights to Series 3 and 4 than that. But these are the stations who have contacted me or scheduled the show. Unlike with the Series 1 and 2 deals, we are in the dark till a station comes forward or new Who appears in their schedules.
Series 2 is currently available to public TV stations in an American Public TV package until March 31, 2010. For the Series 1 and 2 packages, stations have bought the rights to cycle through the episodes 4 times. They are not required to do so. American Public TV is no longer offering Series 1 - I do not know if BBC Worldwide Americas will offer those stations to public TV stations now or not.
2 Public TV stations currently have rights to air the classic Doctor Who run (1963-1989), but not New Who. KBTC 28 Tacoma, WA is airing Peter Davison episodes. WHRO 15 Norfolk, VA is airing Tom Baker episodes.
And now, the listings:

West and other Doctor Who fans liked the live Doctor Who: Podshocks so much that they wanted to keep talking afterwards. The resulting show covers Doctor Who, anything else sci-fi related, and can go wildly off in all directions.
Next scheduled episode:
Saturday 3PM EST (Noon PST, 8PM GMT) - 101. "Be Seeing You" - New Day, New Time. CIA and West are back! And this time, they're discussing The Prisoner.
Two Minute Time Lord http://twominutetimelord.com
A bite-sized commentary and revew show. Host Chip's interest was rekindled by the 2005 revival. He believes in balancing old fandom and new viewers, respect for the past and breaking the rules. He tries to keep his pontifications to 120 seconds, because we're ALL in a hurry these days.
#82 - Two Minute Thanks. On US Thanksgiving, Chip gives thanks for many things.
Staggering Stories http://www.staggeringstories.net
A wild, wandering podcast with Doctor Who and the other flavours of the moment winding together roughly once every 2 weeks. The website's main focus is on stories collected through the years.
Episode 59 - "When Water Goes Wet". A flu-stricken Staggering Stories team is down by 40 percent (both ladies), but soldiers on to discuss The Waters Of Mars, the death of Dollhouse, Defying Gravity (TV show, not the song from Wicked), and other topics. However, even as the show recorded, one of their absent friends furiously tried to get through with a message. If you don't know which absent host managed to turn up anyway through the power of a phone, then you haven't heard the episode yet, and should head off to download it soon-ish.
Coming this weekend - Episode 59 - oh so close to being old enough to get senior discounts!
The Flashing Blade Podcast http://www.flashingblade.org.uk
Tony Gallichan. Jo! One man, one woman. One with decades of Doctor Who fan experience. Another who turns on the show when it airs on TV. One has lots of cats. Another can say the word "news" in various amusing ways. Together they unite for a weekly look into the worlds of Doctor Who, hoping to make a TV show for the brain. Can you get feedback in on their latest episode before they record their next one - good luck with that.
25. Waters Of Mars, Wyn, Chinn, and Professor Dave. Oh my!
Bridging The Rift http://bridgingtherift.wordpress.com
Katrina (Radio Free Skaro) and Nat bring the worlds of Doctor Who fandom, Torchwood fandom, Sarah Jane Adventures fandom, K-9 fandom, and other areas together. Episodes come out roughly once every two weeks. Each episode has a special guest co-host.
13. Cursed Episode Thirteen. Major production problems (I can relate - I am still relating) have scrapped several plans for new episodes. But on Friday November 13, our hosts use pluck and feedback to piece together a new episode.
The Minute Doctor Who Podcast http://web.mac.com/backintheussr6/The_Minute_Doctor_Who_Podcast/Podcast/Podcast.html
Video (sometimes just audio) podcast looking at Doctor Who projects. Episodes are usually under 5 minutes long.
27. Pull To Open. Luke takes a look at the famous but somehow confusing sign on the door of the TARDIS. Yes, that sign. It's story will now be told.

Live editions Late Fridays 1AM EDT/10PM PDT/6AM BST every couple of weeks
Robert Carrie King reviews Doctor Who topics (DVDs and news, mostly) on this Talkshoe program. Frequent cast member on the Cultdom Collective.
48. Delta And The Bannermen; The Waters Of Mars. Darth Skeptical hosts this episode. Suffice it to say that both hosts preferred Waters Of Mars to Delta And The Bannermen. Episode is roughly 2 hours, 7 minutes long.
The Tennantcast http://tennantcast.com
Kelsey, Kari, Flossie, and friends get together to dish on the latest David Tennant news.
26. "Absolute David". David's radio appearance, more about Rex, and what would have happened if an earlier pilot of David's had made him famous before the Casonova/Harry Potter/Doctor Who opportunities had come around.
The Wailing Fangirl http://www.talkshoe.com/tc/22228
Samantha (Romana 2) explores Doctor Who and fandom in Australia, sometimes with the aid of the ladies of the Gallifreyan Time Love Brigade. Frequent cast member on CIA: Cultdom In Audio.
16. The End Of Time Preview Review. Our ladies look at the clip of The End Of Time shown on Children In Need.
Coming when it comes.
Reviews and commentaries of all of Steven Moffat's episodes so far.
The inevitable episodes looking at David Tennant's final stories.
A Podcast Of Impossible Things http://podcastofimpossiblethings.blogspot.com
Cardiff-based Doctor Who fans get together to discuss the latest Doctor Who and do a full length commentary on new Doctor Who episodes.
Doctor Who - The Waters Of Mars - the Cardiff gang do a commentary. Not the production team Cardiff gang. Rather, it's Swethin, Caleb, and ... the one who you can remember without knowing his name.
Bigger On The Inside http://www.earth-2.net
Mike and Dan decide to do their own podcast exploring each Doctor Who story in broadcast order. It is a very different style from Jonathan's. Again - can they pull it off? Part of the Earth-2 family of podcasts. Warning - explicit language (swearing). If your headphones leak any sound at all - do not listen at work.
26. The Dominators and The Mind Robber. Our hosts like moving pictures. They like Zoe. They like clever ideas. While they find some faults, this is the most positive episode in a while. Those looking for complaints should pick an earlier episode - perhaps 22 or 23.
Coming soon-ish - 27. (I think) The Invasion and The Krotons.
Hoo On Who http://hooonwho.com
Fan reviews of recent Doctor Who DVDs by David Hooie, frequently with a guest co-host.
#15. City Of Death. After some production problems (seems to be happening to everybody), David returns with a solo host review of City Of Death, the story that to this day has the highest first run broadcast ratings of any Doctor Who. Tom Baker, Lalla Ward, co-written by Douglas Adams. And the DVD release is 2 full discs. There's even a blink and you'll miss it appearance of This Week In Doctor Who in one of the documentaries. David also details some future plans for the podcast.
The Cloister Room http://thecloisterroom.com
Tom Dickinson begins a solo Doctor Who podcast effort with short shows on short subject that get to the point, bulldoze through the point, back up to ground the point down some more, then flee the scene before the police arrive.
Current episode - 4. Requiem For A Drama. Tom returns after 4 weeks away and looks at shows that are cancelled before their time. Is it worth investing in a show that might soon (or has already) been cancelled. Tom's view is similar to mine (yes, it is worth it), but you're downloading Tom's show for his opinions on this.
Tim's Take On ...
Tim Drury's podcast on various issues. Available on iTunes.
The Big Finish Podcast http://www.bigfinish.com/podcast
Big Finish podcasts at least once a month to discuss their Doctor Who and other projects (Sapphire and Steel, Stargate (!), Dark Shadows, Bernice Summerfield, etc).
Winter Preview Podcast - Nicholas Briggs and the gang get us up to date on upcoming Doctor Who audios, surprises, and more details on the Sherlock Holmes range.
Tachyon TV http://www.tachyon-tv.co.uk
Irregular and irreverant podcast looking at the world of Doctor Who with a funhouse mirror and coming out the other side holding a plush toy that wasn't really the one you wanted but you'll keep it anyway because you can give it to your girlfriend to impress her. It's that kind of show.
Current segment - a short appeal by "Rula Lenska". At least one of the hosts claims that a new episode is in production. Expect it around Christmas.
MMM Commentaries/Fantragic http://www.mmmcommentaries.com
Roving Australian podcasting gang, including Trevor from the DWO Whocast. Commentaries on Doctor Who episodes, Star Wars films, some Stargate stuff, and others. The Frantragic episodes look at Doctor Who and other sci-fi news. Fantragic episodes are on a different iTunes feed from MMM Commentary episodes.
Current Doctor Who episode - Journey's End. If the description in the iTunes tag is anything to go by, this running commentary on the Doctor Who Series 4 finale will not have a happy ending.
The Two Doctors http://www.blogtalkradio.com/thetwodoctors
call in number (718) 664-9807
Jim Iaccino and Kenn Gold look at the latest SciFi broadcasts in the US, with emphasis on fitting in Doctor Who, Dollhouse, Smallville, Supernatural, Fringe, Torchwood, and the other big scifi shows of the moment.
